Himley resident Sylvia Tobin is the latest local to join South Staffordshire Housing Association’s (SSHA) Tenant Partnership.
The Partnership is just one way residents can have their say in how their housing services are run. Mrs Tobin will join 19 local people who work with staff to improve housing services and create neighbourhoods where people can live safely and securely in their homes.
Director of neighbourhood services, Adrian Eggington said: “We are delighted that people are willing to give up the time and energy to promote residents’ interests. We record high levels of tenant satisfaction with our services, but who better to help us achieve even higher results than residents themselves."
Mrs Tobin, a long-standing SSHA tenant, has joined the Partnership to help other tenants get their views across. She says: “I can speak up for people. I want to help the people in my neighbourhood have their say.”
